Open Water in the Great Northwest...
The water in the lake was very cold initially. Definitely colder than what I'm used to back home. But once we adjusted it wasn't bad. I can't say I would have been able to do it without a wetsuit, although Penelope took her wetsuit off after a while and said it was ok. But I dunno... I kept mine on the whole time.
Its become a joke here that I have the "wildlife mojo" meaning that wherever I go the wildlife comes out to see me here. And today was no exception. After 30 minutes or so in the water as we started to get out a bald eagle did a majestic lap of the pond all around us fairly low to us too. It was beautifull.
